Hello Artists of Isya,
we have an all new kind of event specifically for the artistically inclined amongst you! Think you can design banners like the one above, or even better ones? Then we cordially invite you to partake in our All-May Banner Design Event! This event is a little different in that we will not proclaim one winner over everybody else. For this event, the important parts are that as many of you get a reward and we get as many banners as possible!
How to win:
Take a look at the categories and the banner sizes and create an original artwork either for one banner size or prepare a master that can be used for all banner sizes mentioned below the category you have chosen (also see spoiler section).
Design as many banners as you like - we will accept multiple entries.
You can use in-game footage, create original pieces of artwork, make a seamless amalgam of both, just make it Fiesta Online!
All participants need to enter one usable .png file per banner as well as all originally designed master files (for example the .psd files) with the highest possible resolution.
If you turn in the same artwork for all banner sizes mentioned under your chosen category, they will be counted as two entries!
We will review all entries and decide on what banners we accept for our portfolio.
This event takes place during all of May,
so the last accepted entry will be on May 31st at 11:59 p.m. PDT. All winners will be named in the beginning of June.
1 accepted entry - Flame Rock Costume (7 Days)
4 accepted entries - Flame Rock Costume (30 Days)
8 accepted entries - Flame Rock Costume (Permanent)
10 or more accepted entries - Flame Rock Costume (Permanent) and Flame Rock Ribbon (Permanent)
(Remember, resizing one original artwork for all banner types of a category will grant you two entries)
The categories are:
|Announcement||(GM) Event||Insider Information||Patch Notes||Sales|
|These banners are supposed to catch your eye, but not necessarily in a flamboyant way. They should express fun and possibly convey a feeling of urgency or importance.||Event banners are all about fun and playing games in a group. Hobby races, Musical Chairs, a city defense, etc.||This banner should invite you to listen in on a secret in a positive, fun way. It should feel like we're talking amongst a trusted group.||Banners for Patch Notes should suggest hard work or a general sense of getting something done.||Sales pictures can be almost anything; if you're familiar with our pictures, at the start of the week, we do a themed picture, which we will continue doing as often as possible; but for some sales we use recurring themes, like the launcher pictures with two or three item pictures from the webshop presented by a Fiesta Online character (see below) or pictures for special sales, like Mystery Sales and bonus sc offers.|
